2015 Gewürztraminer

Albert Boxler

2015 Gewürztraminer Albert Boxler - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

We recently welcomed Jean Boxler and his wife, Sylvie, to New York City, accompanied by their close friends Félix and Aura Meyer. André Ostertag was on hand as well. Our goal was simple: celebrate how special the wines of Alsace can be, particularly the incredible diversity of terroirs and grape varieties that make the region so exciting and unique. Kermit can remember when Gewurtztraminer was the most prized and demanded grape of Alsace in the United States; my, how times have changed. Its fortunes have fallen along with those of Sauternes growers. But the reason for its popularity back then still holds true today: it is capable of producing some of the most complex, delicious, age-worthy white wines in the world. There are few better ways to experience its charms than through Boxler’s talented hands. Many classical French food pairings exist, although spicy Asian cuisine is also a great combination.

About Alsace

Tragically, Alsace might be the most misunderstood wine region of France. In spite of its long history of viticulture and tremendous diversity of pedigreed terroirs, a past fraught with marketing mishaps has left consumers baffled as to what exactly to expect inside one of these mysterious tall, thin bottles.

The good news, on the other hand, is that a new wave of quality-oriented growers is working hard to put Alsace in its rightful place as one of the world’s most fascinating sources of fine white wine. By embracing tradition, respecting terroir, and making a concerted effort to better communicate the countless virtues their wines have to offer, they have succeeded in putting Alsace back on the map.

Crafted from a number of grape varieties and beautifully interpreting the region’s mosaic of soil types, our Alsace imports are by and large dry whites offering exceptional versatility at table. While each of these selections is ready to be uncorked tonight, the finest among them are also capable of maturing for many, many years in a cool cellar. Expect kaleidoscopic aromatics, lively acidities, and loads of terroir transparency in these skillfully crafted masterpieces. Enjoy a foray into the thrilling world of the world’s most underrated wine region, and certainly do not hesitate to contact our sales staff with any questions as you take off on this mouth-watering adventure.
